Today is the 45th anniversary of the death of C. S. Lewis. Coincidentally, I was born in the same year that C. S. Lewis died. As you might guess, of all the people, other than Jesus, whom I most look forward to meeting in heaven, C. S. Lewis is certainly in my top 5. In a letter to a correspondent written shortly before his death, Lewis commented that he thought Autumn to be the best of the seasons, and old age to be the best part of life. But old age, like Autumn, doesn't last. Some might take that to be a note of despair. However, given Lewis's belief in the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in Christ, I think Lewis ended his life here on earth on a note of hope and keen expectation.
